Women in Science and Engineering at University of Illinois, Chicago, offers a professional development workshop focused on inquiry-based Science Technology Engineering and Math instruction with a commitment to gender equality.  You will learn how to use best strategies to teach STEM to middle and high school girls.

 

This workshop is based on the hit PBS series, SciGirls. SciGirls is an Emmy-award winning PBS KIDS television series and website dedicated to changing the way millions of girls think about STEM. UIC undergraduate and graduate STEM female students and faculty, who are interested in working with the middle and high school girls are invited to participate in a hands-on, minds-on Professional Development Training hosted by Women in Science and Engineering. We welcome you to practice proven strategies for engaging girls in STEM while building a device to measure wind speed, lighting up a room with dough creatures, and much more! Participants attending this workshop will: 

• Learn the latest research for exciting and engaging girls (and boys) in STEM
• Experience hands-on STEM activities
• Leave with curriculum that puts a creative twist on teaching STEM
